I could make a Firkin of cider 5 Hands tall...
I know it's been forever. And this isn't even Sam's 10 month update. I can't say for certain there will be a 10 month update. And there is so much to talk about! My mom's acorn accident....poor Grandma. There is some exciting news I'm not sure I'm allowed to talk about. Oh, and our new patio set! I could go on and on about our new patio set. But, I have been pretty busy. And now, there are apples to deal with. Lots of apples
Saturday we headed out to a local orchard to pick some apples. Seemed like a very "Vermont-y" thing to do, and I had plans for homemade baby food and perhaps some pies. And the orchard is located at a very nice spot. Even the port-a-potty had a pretty view. As we pulled into the parking lot we were greeted by a young girl asking how many bags we wanted. We shrugged. "Two?" and she handed over two folded paper bags. Seemed appropriate. Well, each bag ended up being a half a bushel. And yes, it said so on the bag, but who knows how much a half a bushel is? Oh, 2 pecks. How silly of me.
Consequently, we ended up with a lot of apples. (I should have taken a picture of all our apples..oh well)
But we had fun. It was a nice day, though a bit cloudy. Sam seemed to enjoy the jaunt around the orchard.
So feel free to leave your favorite apple recipe in the comments. I've already made the babyfood and some muffins. Baking is always a little dangerous. It makes me gain wieght.
Well, only have time for this short post. Hopefully more to come soon.
In the meantime...
